Get to know us.

Tina is a Pet & Portrait Photographer, and Kanga is a husky-mix that can balance anything on her nose!


My name is Tina and this is my best friend, Kanga!

I grew up in Lansing and love this community. Although my goal is to work with animals, my career revolves around Professional Communications and finding different ways to engage with the people around me.


I adopted Kanga in July 2015 and she has impacted my life greatly. My dog and I both love people and although she won't be at our photoshoots, I can guarantee you that your pets are welcome in portraits. My best friend watched me grow and was a beautiful model when I was studying for my degree in Photographic Imaging. I believe that memories can be amplified through photography and film, so Tinalooa Photography bloomed through my love of storytelling. 


The Third Anniversary 

Every year since I’ve adopted Kanga,

I make a video celebrating her adoption anniversary.
